The diplomatic overture was dispatched to Hu Yaobang, chairman of the Chinese Communist party, on 29 October 1981. A near-identical letter was sent to the Kremlin, for the attention of Leonid Brezhnev, general secretary of the Communist party of the Soviet Union.

“Like an unconscious and uncontrollable force, our planet appears to be drifting toward self-destruction,” the newly installed socialist leader of somewhere called Burlington wrote.

  1. Bernie is doing exactly what the left was looking for….
    Keeping Hillary from staying in the middle and not paying attention to Progressives..
    He won’t win much of anything…
    He’s NOT even a Democrat…
    He’s an independant/Socialist….
    And he’s got a little dust up on his’ live and let live’ view on gun possession ….
    He seems to be having fun and has buried O’Malley…
    Hillary HAS the nomination unless something crazy happens….
    (Then Biden would jump in)….

    • Welcome back! So nice to see you here again 🙂
      I’m dipping my toes in the waters again – as there is some life to politics again. And either way, the Berniementum will influence politics and strengthen the drive towards more democracy again.

      I’m really curious about how the debates will go though. Hillary is SLOW!

  2. Ah, I’m Happy he’s running though….
    Hillary NEEDS to NOT just walk thru the primaries and NOT be ready for the GOPer’s
